ASB Business was a half-hour business news programme in New Zealand, with insights into issues affecting the business sector. It was broadcast on TV3 between 6.30am and 7.00am weekdays, followed by Sunrise.


Since 2 October 2007, ASB Business had been a main part of Sunrise, which was on air from 6:30 am. In an aim to attract more business viewers, particularly in Auckland, it was decided that from 6 October 2008 that a new 30-minute version of ASB Business would be produced. It was hosted by financial journalist Michael Wilson starting at 6:30 am. Sunrise moved to start at 7:00 am and featured regular business updates.

TV3 cancelled ASB Business on 8 April 2010, stating the show was financially unsustainable.

Note that previously ASB Business was the name of rival TVNZ's morning business programme on TV One at a similar timeslot. This programme is now titled NZI Business
